Compressed Air Foam Systems (C.A.F.S)

Amerex Compressed Air Foam Skid Units are designed for single-person operation and rapid response affording the availability of high expansion foam for maximum fire fighting power in a versatile compact delivery unit. Compressed Air Foam Units are self-contained and stored- energy having the added ability to inject compressed air into the foam solution generating a powerful fire attacking and suppression solution. This foam has a exponentially more dense bubble structure than water and standard foam solutions. The viscosity allows the foam to adhere to vertical and horizontal surfaces and penetrate fires deeper before the compound is broken down allowing latent water to be more effective. Units can be optionally completed with standard skid, trailer, or vehicle mount of choice. (Mobile cart options available for select capacities).
Applications: Amerex Compressed Air Foam Units provide rapid flame attack for Class A and B hazard areas. CAFS attacks all sides of the fire tetrahedron by smothering the fire with a “foam blanket”, thus preventing oxygen from combining with fuel. It diminishes the heat by insulating and reflecting radiant heat, thus preventing excess heat to the fire via a foam barrier. The versatility of these systems have been proven by field tested use in multiple applications. Common high hazard risk areas include:
  • Oil and Gas Production Facilities
  • Heliports and Helidecks
  • Flammable Liquid Storage and
    Transport
  • Fracking Sites
  • Mining Operations
  • Race Tracks
  • Aircraft Hangars
  • Rapid Response Vehicles
  • Industrial and Municipal Fire
    Departments / Brigades
  • Military Fire Teams
